    At last, now can do a proper comparison across the board.

    Or you could have signed up for the March 2012 fix + £ 100 bonus + £ 80 Quidco deal back in November / December ... rather than moan now. What did you expect?

    @TeflonMan - You might as well forget about the Quidco. They are just robbing bastards.

    @PokeHerPete - Why's that? Myself and the g/f both had our EDF payments into our accounts last month £80 :)

    "You might as well forget about the Quidco. They are just robbing bastards." Who? EDF or Quidco? Can't say I love any utility company, but Quidco have generally been good to me over the years. Raised an enquiry for this one and cashback was validated within two weeks, so hopefully will eventually be paid as well.

    Ring them up. I negotiated to halve the Scottish Power increase by agreeing to stay with them for another 18 months.

Sitting warm and pretty now!

    I love Quidco, I love the fact that they can't track a query over 7 weeks old but you can't query anything until it's been 4 weeks, leaving you a 3 week window of opportunity to chase their cockups. My year's up in March so I've asked them to hold off on paying me my outstanding balance until all referrals have coughed up, then pay me the whole lot and close my account.

What do you think?
